The idea of bringing dreams to life is something that artists often hope to do and simple ideas are what fuel us and because of that I got ALL super excited about the movie Inception and I thoroughly enjoyed it! (Tiny spoiler alert.)
I thought Inception kicked the Matrix’s ass with all its upside down fighting and anti-gravity awesomeness. I’m not exactly sure why that was important to me but it was. The visual storytelling was awe-inspiring. Did you see when everything looked like an MC Escher drawing? Or when the physics went all crazy and turned everything into a box? Awesome.Â The characters where endearing. I loved the female architect. Architects should totally be glamorized more often and yes, a smart girl character with an artistic career that requires drafting and math is always a good thing in my book. The props were nifty. (I SO want a brass top now!) Even my popcorn was delicious. I had a freakin’ great time.
However, I have been hearing through the grapevine Â that not everyone thinks Inception was ‘the thinking man’s (or woman’s) blockbuster and that there were some possible plot holes or problems with the storytelling? But I’m not sure what they were. In my opinion everything seemed to fit together in a very strange and surreal way. Just like a dream should.
If you have seen Inception what did you think of it? If you could dream anything into reality what would it be? If you had the choice would you live in a dream-world or stick here in reality?
